Water Management

August 2nd, 2016


Using sensor technology and real- time information on river flows, weather and water quality, Tasmanian farmers, regulators and the environment are benefiting from improved water management.

A $1.25 million project (Sense-T $204 000) that involves researchers from CSIRO and the University of Tasmania. This Project continues and expands Sense-T’s Stage 1 Adaptive Water Resources Management research, using sensors to improve water management in the South Esk and Ringarooma catchments. By providing irrigators with real-time information about river flows, weather and water quality, better decisions about water management are being made for the benefit of farmers, regulators and the environment.
